    Pros

    Great place to work. Lots of work life balance. Excellent pay/benefits. Highly recommend.

    Cons

    Lack of upward movement for career growth dependent on where your team is based out of. If you have a German manager and team based in German, many times it is more difficult to receive proper recognition and career growth as you are not face to face daily with your manager.

    Pros

    SAP is great company. Strong Vision with a compelling story to tell our customers. Hard-working, humble employees all around. Highly Recommend

    Cons

    SAP is still trying to change itself into the Cloud Company powered by SAP HANA. As much as we'd like to be, were not a start up - by default, as we have more than 70k employees. Some older folks are still stuck in the "old way of doing things"

    Advice to Management

    Embrace change. Focus on millennials. Be a champion for your employee's success. Support the people below you. Doing all these would be a recipe for success.
